Honor widows who are truly widows. -1 Timothy 5:3

In an amazing act of charity Kawamoto, one of Japan’s richest men, gave away eight of his multi-million dollar homes in Kahala, Hawaii. These homes were given to low-income Native Hawaiian families. All of the home have been given away rent free with the only expense for the families being utilities. In picking the 8 families out of 3,000 applicants Kawamoto said “he tried picking working, single mothers.” One of these families is Dorie-Ann Kahale and her five daughters who recently moved into a home work around $5 million dollars. The amazing act of kindness comes after years of being criticized for his actions as a landlord, hopefully this more recent action is a true portrayal of his heart as he seeks to give a home to the homeless, especially loving the widows was we are commanded throughout the Bible, especially in 1 Timothy 5.
